Commercial Insurance Policies
Southwest General Health Center will bill most commercial insurance companies.
To receive full benefits, some insurance providers require patients to
receive services with "in-network" or "participating provider"
hospitals and physicians. Call your insurance provider to check its requirements
and to make sure that Southwest General Health Center is in the network.
Southwest General Health Center will post the appropriate adjustment based
on our contractual agreement. If the amount we bill you does not match
the amount shown on your Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your health
plan company, please call us at the number on your bill. In some cases,
companies take discounts for which there is no contractual agreement.
In these cases, we must look to you for payment or resolution with your
Southwest General Health Center will make every effort to obtain payment
on the account from your health plan, but we may need your assistance
to resolve any concerns. Contacting your health plan and encouraging them
to pay will help you avoid receiving a bill for services from the health
center that should be paid by the health plan.
